Uk Olympic Boxing

from Metro

Some of Team GB’s Olympic boxing heroes may be denied the opportunity to compete at next year’s Commonwealth Games, after the International Boxing Association suggested English athletes may be banned.

Afghan Woman to box in Summer Olympics. Afghan boxer (yes, you read that correctly, boxer) Sadaf Rahimi will be representing Afghanistan in the women’s boxing competition at the London Olympics this July. Not only will this be the first time that women’s boxing will be featured at the Olympics, she will be the only woman from Afghanistan at the event. In the Summer games of 2004 Robina Muqimyar and Friba Rezayee became the first women to represent Afghanistan at the Olympics. -- Too awesome!
